It should be legal anywhere.

As for silicon-ing, just buy some rtv silicon gasket or regular bathroom silicon sealent (make sure it's the clear type and not the white type). smear a thin layer over the servo case joints and wire output.

There are some help viddies about sticking liquid silicon or grease in the servo case, but I think it's unnecessary.

You could also use this, I've tried it and it works well... I don't know the mechanics of it but I suspect it's some kind of quick dry rubber compound.

Oh... if you own multiple engines, you might want to leave your oldest or least powerful engine aside as your "wet weather engine", this way, you won't be wearing out your high dollar race engine (which is wasted on a wet and slippery track anyways... less power gets you around faster when wet and slippery)

Oh wow, cool. JQ has a iPad app for you to get all the setups and even create your own setup all through the app. Very very cool.

(take the caps lock off, no need to shout )

The revolve stand is pretty dialed, I have one but only use it at home, it's a little tough to travel with. A Hudy or similar setup station is not really needed, it's a fringe accessory that you can get if you want. I would also invest in a pitboard, and it's a must to get a good quality set of tools, i.e. don't cheap out on the tools. Good tools make the build more enjoyable and will last longer. Enjoy the build!

I think you can use a thin spacer under the middle diff mount for extra clearance.. Jared does that.

Both of you are referring to the newer HC shock bladders, IF346-09 (I've no clue what the HC stands for, don't think it's High Compression, anyone have any idea?). I tried these last year, when they were initially released and had no end of problems. I couldn't even manage to get my shocks to blead properly. I rebuilt them several times and from all 4 shocks, could only get 1 of them to blead properly when using the new -09 bladders.

I changed back to the original bladders, IF346-03 and instantly all the problems I was having disappeared. I've no idea why I couldn't get them to blead right with my shocks but I tried 2 different packets of the -09 bladders and same problems with both packs, so it would seem the problem was definitely caused by the -09 bladders but others have used them successfully. Anyway, I've never had any problems using the original style -03 bladders, so that's what I recommend.

I haven't used the flat bladders yet, but I remember aaron having issues w/ shock bleading. I would guess though that you would need to increase the upstroke of the piston to make up for the shallower bladder - unscrew the shock end a little bit, then fill the cap w/ oil before screwing it onto the body. I'll have to try that sometime and see what's up.

I'm using 2mm spacer for 48t, think the manual stated 1mm but I find the spur gear came out too much below the chassis with 1mm so I go with 2mm.

I think Tebo using 48t, anyone happen to know what size spacer he uses?

Btw, how do you silicon your servos? Do you have to tear them apart?
U can get CorrosionX to waterproof yr servos if u want. I tried it on a used servo, left it submerged in water for whole day and it still worked fine.

Here are the shock collars for the mp9 and evo. Will have them with me at the AMS event if some guys want to give them a try.

The picture is of a short shock body but we just grabbed a medium legnth shock collar for picture purposes. The short would get a short and medium would get a medium and long would get a long.

Currently the shocks spring sags and rests against the shock body. This will support the spring thus keeping it straight and protect the body of the shock while allowing the spring compression under load to take place without any interference. Thats the idea anyways....Im pretty sure it will work out well.

Enjoy
